    Default Applying for single parent pension / payments

    Just asking for a young friend who is recently separated from her DH. If she applies for SPP will x DH have to sign forms to confirm their relationship has ended? She thinks he may not want to do this

    She will need two people to sign her forms. From memory he will receive forms as well. Also, she needs to contact child support within 3 months or else her payments will be cancelled. She can tell them they have a private arrangement if she prefers but he will still be contacted.

    I would advise her to be upfront with him. There is a box to tick whether reconciliation is likely/possible/impossible so maybe she can tick likely to soften the blow. She can also give him the choice of giving her child support to the equivalent of Centrelink payments or back off when she makes a claim. She needs some sort of income. Hth :-)

    The only forms (d)f was asked to sign was a form saying we were living together but no longer a couple.

    Everything else just required me to show proof of ID at a centrelink office, but he wasn't required to do or sign anything
